MY THOUGHTS

A social worker bound and determined to make a difference.  Grey doesn't stop at anything to take care of the defenseless children and little babies.  He is a foster care social worker.   He has many obstacles to face . He deals everyday with violence, gangs, drugs, parents that are connected with criminal activities.   He was doing so much good, that is, until the department takes on a new social worker.   She doesn't like the way Grey does things.  She is interested in the power and status she can gain more than the good she can do.   She and Grey clash.  The author goes into the Social Services system and what goes on as social workers deal with the daily affects of taking children from their families, even though it's necessary for their well being.  It not only affects the children but the social worker and the families.  The author doesn't sugar coat the problems, the situations and the heartaches that take place.  She has written a book right down to the core of what takes place.   As Grey is not only facing the everyday problems of his job but it's starting to take it's toll on him.  He is on the edge and he finds himself going over that thin line more than once.   The new social worker is adding to Grey's stress.   He is struggling to keep it together and hold on to the job that has been his life.    There is a little bright side in the book, a bit of romance.   I'll leave that to the reader.  The book is fast paced but not so that you get lost in what's being said.   The book is interesting, heart breaking and enlightening.  It packs a punch that hits you hard.

I would recommend this book to everyone to read and think about the problems that still exist in the Social Services area.  There needs to be reform and more support to the workers.   Those who indeed care and want to make a  difference need support and understanding.  It's not an easy job by far.

I received a copy of this book from the author and PUYB and voluntarily decided to review it.

 I would give this book  5 STARS.
